If you’re lucky enough to have a friend that enjoys the show as much as me and my friend Kellie, you’ll message each other the whole episode of the show giving commentary on what you think of people’s action or situations.

This year the show has seen a couple of changes which includes an brand new villa for contestants to soak up the sun and get to now each other.

Contestants will also be wearing pre-loved clothing this series, which is a great way to see sustainability and encourage the younger generation that not every outfit you buy has to be brand new or cost a fortune.

Some of the line-up has already been announced for the show with a paramedic from Swansea and a microbiologist from Dublin already confirmed to be stepping foot in the Mallorca villa in a bid to find love and take home the £50,000 prize money.

The show returns for a bumper episode on Monday at 9pm for a 90-minute episode and every night at 9pm for 60-minute episode except for Saturday’s which will be a re-cap show.

Stay tuned with the column as we set sail for the Love Island journey which is sure to be packed with a whirlwind of emotions.
